Congrats - the Ranger is nice mid-size pick, saw it this year at the Cleveland auto show.
I had one back in the early 90's and it really fit the spot of needing a truck but not a full-sized one.
You can take auto badges off in a couple of ways.
Heat the emblem up with a heat gun and slide dental floss or fishing line behind the badge and "floss" it off, clean up the adhesive residue and then use a little polishing compound to remove any "ghosts" the may be left on the clear coat.
Some recommend spraying the badge with WD-40 or De-Solv-it and doing the same this with floss or fishing line.
There are numerous Youtube vids on it.
Good luck on the de-badging and enjoy the new ride.
